30-day delay for IL concealed carry law
The 7th Circuit Court granted a delay request from Attorney General Lisa Madigan Tuesday.
Madigan argued the Illinois constitution gives a governor 60 days to review and act on legislation.The previous federal deadline of June 9th would have given Governor Pat Quinn only nine days to act on a measure lawmakers passed.
That plan allows carrying of concealed weapons with certain exceptions. Illinois is the only state that prohibits concealed carry.
